Sandals Grande Antigua Mediterranean Village to Open This Week


The grand opening celebration of Sandals Grande Antigua Mediterranean Village, slated to open October 4, is expected to draw some well-known Hollywood celebrities.

The property has come a long way since Travel Agent visited Antigua at the end of last year for a hard-hat tour of the facility. The three-day celebration will kick off October 4, with VIP guests welcomed to the property, live music from Shaggy and Antiguan culinary delights. The 180-suite Mediterranean Village complements the resort’s existing 193-room Caribbean Village, providing guests with two different luxury resort experiences, additional dining options, an expanded Res Lane spa, and a sixth pool, the largest in the eastern Caribbean.

Agents earn the standard 10 percent commission. Once they accrue three registered bookings over a calendar year, it goes up to 13 percent, and Preferred Sandals Agencies earn 15 percent. All receive an extra percent for booking online. The travel agent liaison for the property is Jennifer Ross, manager, retail partnerships for Unique Vacations. Agents can reach her at 800-SANDALS.
